Noon Edition

Year in Review

A few weeks after writing the text to this final opera in his epic sage, the composer was persuaded that his draft assumed too much background knowledge to the story, so he added a prologue to bring the audience up to speed on the plot. Even the title was changed to reflect a new focus of the plot. Ultimately, everything is destroyed, and the listener ends up where they started nearly 16 hours before; a relatively short time compared to the 26 years it took for the opera to reach its final state!
